The first week of fantasy football season shone light on both overlooked prospects and veterans alike who proved they can produce.

There was a fight in a sports game during the weekend. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a National Hockey League game, where violence is accepted as part of the culture. It happened in the National Football League, of all places. It’s pretty hilarious the sport doesn’t see that many fistfights despite its violent nature. The fight involved the Houston Texans’ four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver ...

Another professional athlete has a run-in with the law. The latest high-profile athlete to get arrested is New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards, who was charged last week for driving while intoxicated. It happens way too often. The arrest has been raising several issues in the sports world, with Edwards getting a next-to-nothing punishment by the...

Morgan Marx

September 7, 2010

A brash, hard-hitting defense.  A matinee-idol quarterback with something to prove.  A defensive-minded head coach who doesn’t care about public perception.

In the last few years, the NFC East has been known to be one of the toughest divisions in the NFL, and this year’s teams are keeping that tradition alive and well. If the NFC East is not the best conference in the NFL, it most certainly is the deepest and most competitive from top to bottom. One can make the case...

In a preview of the 32 NFL teams, here is the AFC West, which may have a possible Super Bowl contender. KAN...

A look into the 2009 NFL season’s future

Gilberto Manzano

September 8, 2009

It’s that time of year again when the freshmen at CSUN ask themselves: “I wonder when the first football game is and who they play,” only later to be disappointed to find out CSUN doesn’t have a football team. Cheer up! The NFL kicks off tomorrow and this could be the year your NFL team wins the Super Bowl (well, probably not). If you...
